The Vital Five
And if you are not praying about the debt ceiling shenanigans that are going on, please begin immediately. I am appalled at the pride and arrogance flaunting itself in Washington at the expense of We the People.
Even so come quickly LORD JESUS; but until You do, HOLY SPIRIT, move me to be faithful and full of courage because You, LORD, are our KING and Provider and You will never forsake us. Thank You, that You are Sovereign and sinful man can only continue as You give leave and for us that know You and love You, Your Word remains valid, trustworthy and operational.

Hebrews 10:19 Therefore, brethren, since we have confidence to enter the holy place by the blood of Jesus,
20 by a new and living way which He inaugurated for us through the veil, that is, His flesh,
21 and since we have a great priest over the house of God,
22 let us draw near with a sincere heart in full assurance of faith, having our hearts sprinkled clean from an evil conscience and our bodies washed with pure water.
23 Let us hold fast the confession of our hope without wavering, for He who promised is faithful;
24 and let us consider how to stimulate one another to love and good deeds,
25 not forsaking our own assembling together, as is the habit of some, but encouraging one another; and all the more as you see the day drawing near.

Based upon these Scriptures, I am urging you (and counseling myself) especially in this maliciously generated economic instability, to faithfully devote ourselves to:
1. pray without ceasing (I Thessalonians 5:17)
2. daily, read and search the Scriptures. (Acts 17:11)
3. attend and serve in a local Bible-Believing Church (Hebrews 10:25)
4. give at least a tithe of all your income and extra offerings (Malachi 3:10)
5. evangelize the world (Mark 16:15)
This is our reasonable service; anything less is willful disobedience.
